About Marek Pärtel

I have been entrepreneur all my life. Just after graduating high school I sold my old Russian car and went to Florida to buy Nike and Tommy Hilfiger for Estonian sports stores as the official distribution channels were missing back in 90-s in Estonia.

During the last 15 years I have understood what gets my pulse racing – property . During these years, the property market has certainly delivered on interest, challenge, and adrenaline. Living and thriving through economic crises taught me a lot about taking and managing risks in property investments- both in Estonia and abroad. As a developer and investor myself, I know there are situations when banks are not willing to lend money or are very slow – even though the business plan is solid, and the security is strong.

Seeing huge inefficiencies in financial world, in 2013 the idea of creating an alternative marketplace for property investments was born. With extensive experience from property sector from 8 countries , I co-founded EstateGuru – an online marketplace for secured property loans and investments. With the support of over 80000 nvestors from 109 countries so far, we have already disbursed loans of over €340 000 000 in 8 countries, and are now building the leading cross-border marketplace for short- and mid-term property loans in Europe. With the investors, borrowers and supporters who have joined us on our journey already, we are building ecosystem of property finance and wealth management to make it more transparent, flexible and accessible for both businesses and investors of different profile
